    Whatever was said, evidence gathered, or even the whole arrest/charge can be challenged or even thrown out or ruled inadmissible - later, of course, in the judicial process. It HAS to be read, because it is a basic constitutional right and kills the entire "due process" process and "innocent until proven guilty" cornerstones of our legal system. Everyone has the right to not self-incriminate and defend themselves as effectively as possible. God help us if these rights are ever challenged, weakened, or even taken lightly. Contact an attorney for the specifics, since I am not one, and have possibly butchered some of the terms and/or specifics. But, the general idea stands.
